{image from mylittlenorway.com}

Mix

1 ½ cup brown sugar

1 cup vegetable oil (I prefer canola)

3 eggs

Then add (don’t mix, just stir with a spoon so its stays fluffy!):

2 cups flour

1 spoon Baking Powder

1 spoon vanilla

1 ½ spoon cinnamon

¼ spoon nutmeg

3 cups grated carrots

1 cup walnuts chopped (or almonds)

3 spoons coconut flour

bake in a hot oven (200 degrees) 35-40 minutes. Cake is ready when inserted toothpick comes out dry.

Icing

  • 50g butter
  • 1 tsp citrus rind
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of citrus juice
  • optional; add few spoons of grated carrots

Mix all ingredients, pour over the cake when cool…Leftovers of icing can be poured over the slices!

Ps: you can replace the carrots by apples, equally delicious!
